I'm looking for an empirical result, for example based on logs from an online server or from records of championship events.

I'm particularly curious about the difference between Jd games and non-Jd games (with and without the jack of diamonds being worth -10 points).

    What's "Jd games"? – John Jul 7 '16 at 19:22

    You can't explain what "Jd" is using the word/acronym "Jd"? So what in the world is "Jd"!?! I know what Hearts is. I have never heard of "Jd" and I'm guessing others here haven't either. – dmikester1 Jul 7 '16 at 19:42

    @JoeW No, 'shooting the moon' involves getting all of the hearts and the queen of spades (all the cards that would normally give you points), and instead of you getting the points everyone else does. – diego Jul 8 '16 at 0:30

    This is not quite a duplicate of that question - that one asks what the probability is from a theoretical standpoint, and this from an empirical one. – Benjamin Cosman May 1 '17 at 15:56
